Victoria Falls now boasts a new International Airport that services a number of local and international airlines. British Airways, Delta, South African Airways, Emirates, KLM, Fast Jet and Air Zimbabwe are just some of the trusted airlines you can choose to book with.

From Harare, the capital of Zimbabwe, there are car rental options for the 8+ hour drive to Victoria Falls. Speak to us about your preferred method of travel and we can happily assist you with the best advice.

We offer airport Transfers for an additional fee to all our guests.

Malaria in Victoria Falls is present but not rife. Nonetheless, we recommend guests speak to their doctor before travelling to take a course of malaria prophylaxis before arriving in Zimbabwe. Whilst on safari and in the area, we suggest you lessen the risk by avoiding being bitten by mosquitoes by wearing long sleeves and trousers in the evening and applying a good mosquito repellent at dusk and sleeping under a mosquito net or in an air-conditioned room. If you have any further concerns, please speak to our knowledgeable staff about this matter.

We recommend you speak to your doctor before travelling as you may need inoculations for yellow fever, tetanus, hepatitis A and B, cholera and rabies – although these are VERY rare in the Victoria Falls area.

Despite some often exaggerated and bad press, Zimbabwe is a safe country and its people are warm and welcoming. We do encourage visitors to please just keep their wits about them and avoid showing off valuable items whilst in public areas so as to prevent petty crime or any unnecessary incidents. On safari, there are absolutely no safety concerns and our qualified and experienced guides will ensure you have a safe and memorable time with us!

Our small vibrant town is best explored by foot in the centre during the day but any further we recommend a taxi service or transfers as provided by us. Speak with us when booking to see what would be the best transport solution for you during your visit.
